I have a compaq presario v5000 laptop with windows xp home edition that will not power on.

when I turn it on, I get the following beep codes 1, 4, 1, 1

I don't know what the manufacturer of the BIOS is.

I have removed the battery and get the same problem.

I get a black screen, no logos, no activity at all. then it turns itself off after about one minute.
